at home now, if I can remember correctly...
laphroaig 10 and 18
glenfiddich 18 (yuck)
Ardbeg Galileo, 1999
I might be missing one.
I've had Belvenie doublewood, Highland Park 12 and a sampler of 21 (my god that was delicious!). glenfiddich 12, glenlivet 12
not a fan of blended scotchs, only single malts.
glenfiddich and glenlivet are introductory scotchs as they're cheap, and altogether not that great. but if you can stomach drinking those you'll definitely be more inclined to delve into the tastier, more expensive, distilleries.
Also, keep in mind, the older the scotch, the better. It mellows out incredibly and the entire scotch changes. the highland park 12 was good... but my god the 21 was amazing. It tasted like butterscotch and was just as smooth.
The laphroaigs are interesting. they heavily smoke the barley with peat, so the 10 is very smokey and robust, while the 18's smokiness has mellowed out a lot, but I prefer the 10 for that reason.
right now, of what I own, my favorite is the glenfarclas. before that was probably the belvenie doublewood.
I need to grab a bottle of highland park 21 though.
